The classic Schott Perfecto jacket is perhaps the jacket thought of when it comes to the history of biker jackets. It is said that Schott Perfecto was the first manufacturer to put the zipper off center on the front of a leather jacket. The detail has proven to be popular and today this kind of jacket design is well known and used by many different companies.
This jacket is made of a genuine horsehide, a material known for it's high quality and for being one of the leather materials that will age best with time and wear. The jacket is shiny and smooth and the idea was that if you should fall your bike, the jacket's surface would help you glide along the ground. The shine will eventually wear out, and the jacket will look it's best when it's been worn for many years.
This is a secondhand jacket that never has been worn. In other words it is new without tags.
